You stays with your college, and whichever college you end up with dictates your location for the three years you are here. If you get a town college, then you are in luck because everything will be pretty accessible. Otherwise, you'll end up in a place where Nightlife and food is at least 20 minutes walk away. At studies facilities vary with colleges and faculty. Some has 24 hours library, others close on weekends. The economics faculty has bad facilities. The lecture rooms are too packed and has a musky odour to it. The audio system also has problems too often.

Very inclusive of LGBT, but not so much on poorer students. Many students here are bourgeois snobs, and can make poorer students feel out of place sometimes. Exorbitant rent by some colleges inevitably price some students out, reducing access while claiming to be accessible.

They usually have plenty of mindfulness workshops and yoga classes. However, if pressure from certain director of studies does not go down, no amount of yoga can destress you.
Support for international students
The university offers close to zero support for international students. Internationals have to pay college fees on top of tuition fees which EU students are not required to. College fees are around £7000, with tuition amounting to at least £22k, cost is extremely high.

The work load is extreme. But people are great: very social and friendly. Night life isn't great but can be good sometimes. Plenty of things going on, sadly there isnt the time to do much due to the workload. Cambridge is a beautiful city and is very easy to navigate, overall great city for students.

Course review , 12/05/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

The course involves both practical elements of animal handling and the scientific basis from day 1, both of which are assessed throughout the course. Whilst the traditional preclinical/clinical divide may not suit everyone, for those who enjoy learning about how and why things work, and working from first principles, this course would suit you!

My degree offers an impressive coverage of themes from sociology, history of political thought, anthropology, and political theory from various regions across the world.
The mode of assessment is 4 written exams each year, each exam consisting of a 3 hour session on which you write 3 essays.

Think the degree is full of both positives and negatives:

Content and structure - nowhere near as flexible with modules as I would have thought and how they advertise it - mostly forced to do literature with very little flexibility - linguistics if one wants but even that isn't the best for me
Structure - extreme amount of texts to study makes it very difficult to read them and secondary critics about them

complexity - very complex, they expect an extremely high level of analysis and it is not easy at all

Course module review - Constitutional Law, 10/05/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

Constitutional Law is one of the 8 compulsory papers studied by everyone taking the 3 year law course at Cambridge. The paper focuses on the Separation of Powers, Parliamentary Sovereignty, the Rule of Law, Human Rights and Judicial Review. These are the things that determine the power public bodies have, and so is possibly one of the more political modules in the degree. The Academics in this area, who lecture and 'supervise' the paper are genuinely at the top of their field and are very good teachers.

Course module review - Natural Sciences, 11/04/2014

Submitted by Anonymous on

Lots of content and very difficult to find time to fit in all the work. The course pushes you EXTREMELY hard but is very satisfying when you understand it and all the hard work pays off once it is completed as you do feel much much smarter! Teaching is good for the most parts and notes are very comprehensive. Work is assessed mostly by exam but there is a very small amount of practical work and report writing. Resources are good and support is readily available.
